Food Network StarEdit
In 2012, Duncan became a contestant on the eighth season of the Food Network series Food Network Star, being mentored by Alton Brown. She eventually became one of the final four contestants, and she filmed a pilot for a potential series called Martie with the Party. She eventually lost the competition to Justin Warner; however, on May 31, 2014 , it was announced that she (as well as Chad Rosenthal from season nine) would be a contestant on the Food Network Star spin-off webseries Star Salvation, which gives eliminated contestants a chance to re-enter the Food Network Star competition. Duncan was eliminated from Star Salvation in the second episode of the season.
Duncan was born in Birmingham, Alabama. Her mother, Martha Bossart, died in 2004 at age 73. Duncan initially did not reveal her age, simply billing herself on Food Network Star as "slightly over 40"; however, she gave her age as 50 on the July 15, 2012 episode.
